I had a Harley Benton GA5 (terribly bad sounding amp) modded into a 5F2A clone with no NFL, one 6V6GT and a Hammond OT. The perfect blues amp!!! With the mods it went from 0 to hero. Incredible change.
Volume knob goes. 0 to 3 - clean;4-6 - cooking and dynamic; 7-10 - N Young's filth. Love it and very loud for about 4 watts. Enough for a small gig and the low end looks after itself. Perfect in the mix. And you can always mike it up if required. Mind you, I had a post OT speaker out too. You never know what you're going to have.....

5 watt Champ clone bought as a B stock deal for £130. I keep debating putting it in a Tweed cab, but that would cost more than the amp did. Sounds great cranked up, especially with my Esquire.
